Flip Your Language Classroom

books   What will I learn?

Studies have shown that when it comes to learning foreign languages, combining technology and human instruction is more powerful than either computer learning or human instruction alone. The flipped classroom is an exciting new methodology in education where students “front load” their language abilities by learning vocabulary and phrases independently before each class. Teachers then build on what their students have already learned, practicing and applying that knowledge in class through communicative activities and task-based strategies. The result is a more rewarding classroom experience, with more time spent actively engaging in the language, rather than passively listening.  This webinar will teach you how to flip your class and enjoy the wealth of benefits to both teacher and student alike. 

 

In completing this webinar, attendees will receive an implementation guide and earn a certificate of completion.

Reach Students Beyond the School Day: Teach Language Asynchronously

books   What will I learn?

We live in a digital world that allows our students to access information 24/7. Why not use that to your advantage by teaching your students asynchronously?

 

Asynchronous learning is a student-centered teaching approach that employs a wide variety of web, mobile, and cloud-based tools outside of regular school hours, thus removing the constraints of time and place.  The tools at your disposal are many: social media, mobile applications, collaborative communication, learning objects, blogs, and beyond.

 

In this webinar, we will explore the benefits and risks in asynchronous teaching, as well as the positive impact it can have on students’ lives. The webinar will also include details on how to integrate these tools into any language-learning curricula. 

 

In completing this webinar, attendees will earn a certificate of completion.
